>>> is that does it for us. thanks very much for watching.

since 19999. the scout master of one local troop in the dallas area tells us parents of his scouts are talking about leaving scouting if, in fact, the boy scouts start to open up to gay members. activists who support a policy of inclusion say that given the lack of corporate sponsorship, the declining corporate funding, and the declining membership in the boy scouts that they need to admit gays for this organization to survive long-term, soledad. >> casey wian, thank you so much. appreciate that. >>> let's get to tony perkins, president of the family research council. on monday, the frc and other groups put an ad out. tony, thank you for talking with me list the reasons you do not support lifting this ban? >> we support the scouts and the position they have taken and for 103 years, they have been helping boys make that journey from adolescence and childhood into adulthood. and they have had a very basic code. a code of honor, code of duty, and a code of morality. they want to hold that and they have every right to do that as a private organization and we encourage them to do that t
't giving up yet. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." cutting our pay. that's how one u.s. officer says u.s. troops view the recommendation for a smaller pay increase in 2014. no one goes into the military to get rich but most servicemen and women need every dollar in their paycheck. so worried that next paycheck may be smaller is not going over well among the troops. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has the details. she's working the story. barbara, what's going on? >> wolf, in this town, there's nothing that causes more anxiety in budget politics than the concept of cutting the pay for the troops. but that is exactly what is on the table if congress and the president cannot reach an agreement on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defen

reporting of certain activity in the air above the scene of what was happening. can you tell us about that? >> reporter: sure. well, there was aerial surveillance going on. now, these negotiators have been on the scene since last week. we know the fbi took over the investigation last week, and we know that they've been trying to figure out kind of the layout of dykes' property. now, the aerial surveillance, when an fbi team comes in like this, they obviously have different methods that they use to get a clearer picture of what exactly is going on. we were able to confirm with a federal law enforcement official that the small aerial aircraft that we've been seeing kind of circling the property in the morning, that that was a surveillance aircraft. so that's what we've been seeing the last few days, and again police have been very tight-lipped and haven't said exactly what they have been finding or what the location -- or what the layout of dykes' property has been. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you so much. sorry -- you need to stay there, sorry, gabe. i wanted to ask you one more question conce

and we do not know here on the scene that has not been reported to us. but it did seem there was some excitement from law enforcement officials if it is true that the child was found safe. so we'll just have to wait and see over the next few minutes once officials come here and tell us exactly what happened. >> but you did mention earlier that you saw an ambulance moving. is that right? >> reporter: that is correct. that would seem to suggest that the child might have been brought out on that ambulance. we don't know that for sure, but we had not seen that ambulance come down that dirt road before, and it was around the same time we heard that boom, when we heard that activity, and, you know, we're just really waiting to find out, and certainly if that is true, that this child made it out, that would be an incredible relief for this community. midland city, alabama, is a small town, about 2,400 people, and they have just been rocked by this standoff the past few days. about 140 hours at this point, and people here are tired because they've been praying for the past few days. they've b
assessment of what went wrong and what exactly happened. >> i know you're trying to get us the actual details here. what do we know about his girlfriend, reeva steenk. mp? . >> reporter: i was just on her twitter page and it's quite sad to read the twitter page of somebody who died just a few hours ago. on it she describes herself as a model, a law graduate and a child of god. what we do see through her twitter feed is that it appears she went to a promotional party last night for a car launch and a lot of people were excited. there's a picture of her up there. she's a very beautiful blond woman and she was also just recently in the celebrity pages of one of the sunday newspapers. the couple were a bit of a celebrity couple here in south africa. we do know that. in terms of what happened, what transpired, it's tragic either way. one family has lost a sister, a daughter, of course, oscar pistorius, the big question now is the implications for his career. he was supposed to race in march. it's highly unlikely he'll be taking to the track by then. >> do we know if steenkamp and pistorius lived t
on of a power outage. >> 34 long minutes. it felt like it was a decisive moment in the game. walk us through some of the other highlights. >> yeah. you know, it was all ravens before the power outage. you just know the conspiracy theories were gearing up saying the nfl is trying to stave us off of winning the super bowl. it was 28-6 when the power went out. it was all ravens before the power outage. after the power outage, the san francisco 49ers basically made a surge of their own and got back into the game. the game came down to four plays inside the 10 yard line. when it's a second year like collin kaepernick going against one of the best defenses in the league you knew the ravens were going to come out on top. ravens get the win, 34-31 and john harbaugh beats his brother jim. >> i don't know if i agree. i thought there was every reason the 49ers would put it in. they had all the momentum on their side. somehow the ravens stopped them. great to see you this morning. i'm sure a long night for you too. >> thank you. >> a little blurry-eyed this morning. there's lots of debate this morning a

will remember super bowl xlvii for the team's kind of nail biting victory. 34-31. most of us will remember it was the night that went out in new orleans. a power outage in new orleans stopped the game for 34 minutes it may have prevented a interest bowl blowout. we are joined by rachel in new orleans. >> good morning, soledad. no question, this was a huge embarrassment. i spoke to a superdome official last night, they had gone through a whole week with the stadium and city showing they could host an event of this magnitude. it not a gradient issue. this was about a piece of electronic equipment that monitors the electricity coming into the stadium. officials called it an "ab normality." really, it's just like in your house, when you have to go down to the basement and flip the switch again, that's what happened with the officials. they had to flip everything back open. lights slowly came back on. 34 minutes. a big delay for the ravens especially. right before, a kickoff return for the touchdown. right before that, the halftime show. and their offense hadn't been on the field for more than

was rescued. the pentagon was involved in some way here, leon panetta okaying the use of special equipment used for monitoring. that would have meant that military personnel were also on site but were not part of the takedown. it shows you that concern for this little boy went almost all the way to the top of this administratio administration. >> i know we don't know exact details of how this went down but authorities said they observed this man holding a gun. do we know how they were able to actually observe him? we've been told all along they've been communicating through this pvc piping. >> right. and apparently they've been doing a lot more than just talking through a pipe. we have been told now that there may have been surveillance of some sort, video surveillance. we have also heard maybe the use of drones would be part of that surveillance. there was a lot of high-tech equipment brought to bear. hundreds maybe at some point all surrounding this area and all in some way taking part in the operatio operation. >> is there any understanding of why dykes took this boy off the bus? >> rep
